Ice Cream, Paper Straws, and Coke Floats – #ShareItForward

collective-bias-disclosure-01

I was sort of late to the motivational game in planning Luke’s first birthday.  For Aubrey’s I started around her half birthday.  Jon and I wanted something different and we came up with the idea for a Hot Dog Bar – lots of hot dogs, lots of condiment options.  It was fun and everyone loved it.  For Luke’s birthday, I wanted something different, and what better way than with a Coke Float Bar.  I find it fitting since with both pregnancies I loved them. Jon hadn’t heard of a Coke Float before me, but now he’s been informed :)  After finding THE PERFECT Coca Cola bottle, we were ready to let the ideas start flowing.

Before I grabbed this at Walmart, I was able to check online to see if they even made the special Coke, Diet Coke, or Coke Zero bottles in his name.  After a checking to see if I could find his name on Coke bottles, I discovered I COULD! And after searching each of the refrigerated coke sections at the checkout stands, I finally found his name in the last one.  It was fate! I checked out the ice cream choices and decided on the traditional vanilla as well as a few other non-traditional flavors.

While Luke was working on the smash cake (with help from Aubrey – it was cute), my sister helped with the floats for the kids.  She said the most popular ice cream choice was Cotton Candy mixed with the cokes.

She also gets bonus Auntie points for dressing up as a Ninja Turtle to match Luke’s party theme.

On July 6th, there is also a Share A Coke Event happening at Walmart stores nationwide.  Check out this list to see if there will be one by you.  Share a Coke Event.

and shhhh – don’t tell anyone, but I have leftover Coke & I feel it’s my duty to try out each flavor every night this week.  My special reward for a party well done and a way to #ShareItForward.

      I accidentally left the sprinkles inside for the party. I found them Sunday morning. Whoops! But imagine red white & blue jimmies sprinkled all on top! Heck, even go all out and get some whipped cream added on top! Yum!

      The Cotton Candy ice cream was pretty awesome. It’s primarily vanilla but with tiny little bursts of cotton candy. I ate the rest of the carton last night 😉
